A coastal summit 200 meters from the road.
Short Summary created by jackill, Conor74,  15 Aug 2014
Park at V77809 23943 A just past a house on the left taking care not to block the field gate, there is room for 3-4 cars.
Head south west along a grassy track towards the obvious tower and buildings.
Excellent sea and coastal views on a clear day. . Acc to wiki, this was built in 1804 and 100 years later Marconi, who spent years in this area experimenting on telegraph communication, moved the equipment to this point too.
Apparently the station was destroyed by the IRA during the War of Independence. The actual summit appears to be in the middle of a thick clump of furze and briars, so whether one needs to stand on it depends on how OCD one is about these matters.
